It’s going to look like this at least part of most days from now to mid October. Followed by eight months of sunshine! So far the hurricane season is looking below normal – must be very annoying to the doomsaying Al Gore types..

More,Better,Cheaper Flights to BA

IMG_9766.JPG Starting next week LAN Argentina will begin nightly flights from MIA to EZE in Buenos Aires. Business and leisure travel to Argentina has doubled in the last five years,accoirding to this article in Miami Today. In response American and Aerolineas will add more flights. Recently prices shot up over $2000 RT, but now will be a more reasonable $650. Now it will be much easier to jet down and enjoy the “Paris of the South” or connect onwards to hit the ski slopes in Bariloche or Las Lenas.

All Women Gallery Show

In the recent news, many of our young people are being victimized by random acts of violence. Here is an organization working to help our children. This ‘All Women’ show at the Jakmel Art Gallery includes, poetry, paintings, dancing, music etc. Something for everyone. Personally, it is nice to see a show like this one in the heart of Miami showcasing our beautiful women and their unique and special talents. This event is to help support the charitable organization Palaloko4kids. It sounds like a wonderful way to spend a Friday evening and see some wonderful talent.

WEATHER REPORT:
If you are near a window or near a dog, I’m sure you heard the loud thunder and saw the blinding lightning outside. A few lost souls in my neighborhood had just begun to cut the lawn. My garbage can is upright in front of my house collecting a nice sampling of rainwater but I’m not putting on a poncho to go get it. Maybe in a few hours the sun will dry it out. That’s one thing I love about Miami, we get four seasons, Rain, Hot, Cool, Hurricane !!

But the good news is the National Hurricane Center says the forecast sees fewer hurricanes than expected. [Read FULL article here] But don’t get cocky, keep on your toes. No one see the future … oh except for psychics & weathermen.. ;-)

Happy Tuesday everyone .. stay dry if you can

Chris is a No-Show

Looks like Chris’ the tropical depression-storm-hurricane is a no-show, which is fine by me. It has been hotter than a ________ (you can fill in the blank). A large gray cloud hovered over Dade and Broward counties this weekend, but didn’t produce the storm it could have. Looks like Miami Vice has dried up in theaters, fell back to #2 behind Pirates of the Caribbean.
